A number of The Last of Us Part II music videos hint at a 2019 release window for the upcoming survival game, which is more than Sony has yet to offer us.
Several The Last of Us Part II music videos recently posted to the PlayStation Music YouTube channel feature the year “2019” next to the game’s name in the video description section. Interestingly, of the seven The Last of Us Part II videos uploaded over the past few days, only the most recent video—“The Last of Us (Cycles) [Studio Vers.]”—doesn’t specify the game’s launch year, instead listing it as “20??”.
Assuming the other videos will soon be updated to hide the year, an example of one of the original description sections can be seen in the image below, captured by Reddit user BostonMIT. For anyone doubting the validity of this PlayStation Music account, it is linked to Spotify, so the content seems to be the real deal.
A 2019 release window for The Last of Us Part II has felt like a fair bet, now more than ever, but one of PlayStation’s most recent announcements may be cause for concern. In a recent Blogcast, PlayStation’s Shawn Layden revealed that there will be no PlayStation Experience this year. This is apparently due to the publisher’s relatively small line-up of upcoming exclusives, with Layden specifically naming Dreams and Days Gone as its only main contenders.
Last year’s event featured Spider-Man, which wasn’t launching until nine months after the show. If The Last of Us Part II was making a 2019 launch, one would think the game would have made the cut for the PlayStation Experience, and maybe even rescued the event for this year.
